AUGUSTA-

Bluff City 16u completed a magical Saturday in Augusta with a magical victory.

Competing against the Massachusetts-based EYBL program Expressions Elite 16u the wing-dominated Bluff City 16u team needed every ounce of grit.

The two teams hit the 7-minute mark even.

Despite the heavy protestations from Expressions’ parents the Bluff City coaches elected to hold the basketball for seven straight minutes.   Alvin Miles held the ball while positioning his team for a final shot.

Miles tried a floater at the horn, but it missed long.

Expressions won the tip to open the four minute overtime.

Bluff City challenged a shot at the rim.  It missed off the glass.

With three-plus minutes remaining in overtime Bluff City again elected to hold for the a final shot.

Let Marcellus Brigham Jr. (PrepHoopsTN #23) describe the sequence.
